The Varsity Boys played a different game in each half and ended up falling to Canterbury 51-33. The Eagles came out strong in the first quarter behind Owen and Micah’s scoring and the game was tied at 15. Owen continued to score in the second quarter and the Eagles played well offensively and trailed by one at halftime. The second half proved to be a struggle for the team. Turnovers and a lack of execution on both ends of the floor led to a run by Canterbury that put the game out of reach. Owen scored 24, Micah added 5, and James and Bo each scored 2.
The Summit Varsity Boys Basketball team went on the road and lost to Wesleyan 59-41. Although the team came up short, they played one of their best games of the season. Attacking on the offensive end and battling on defense, the Eagles made it a game. Owen, James and Jay led the team in the first quarter and the Eagles trailed by 3. Owen and Teddy knocked down some threes in the second quarter, Jay and Jack did a good job setting screens and rebounding inside, but the Eagles trailed by ten at the half. Owen caught fire in the third quarter and the Eagles cut the lead to 39-36. Wesleyan attacked the basket in the final quarter and pulled away Late for the victory. Owen led the way with 29 points, James scored 6, and Teddy and Jay both added three.
The Varsity Boys Basketball team returned to the court after the winter break and played inspired, aggressive basketball before falling to North Davie 53-32. Behind James, Teddy, and Owen’s scoring and an aggressive defense led by David, Cooper and Jay, the Eagles took an early 13-11 lead. Jay’s offensive rebound plus a basket and Owen’s three point shooting kept the team in the game at the half. The boys battled valiantly in the second half but came up on the short end of the score. The team’s effort and ability to pass the basketball are inspiring. The Eagles play again next Tuesday at Wesleyan. Owen led the scoring with 17, Teddy scored 7, James added 3, Jay and Noah scored 2, and Cooper closed out the scoring with one point.
